SINAPSE YouTube Channel

SINAPSE has a YouTube channel for sharing videos about Scottish imaging research produced by its members, thus far for specific projects:

 

IOP International Year of Light video competition

Two entries from SINAPSE were submitted in the International Year of Light video competition held in 2015 by the Institute of Physics (IOP) in Scotland, each explaining how light is used in imaging research:

Dr James Cameron (Edinburgh) - 'The Eye as a Window to the Brain'
Tim Morgan (Glasgow) - 'Helping to Study What's Going Wrong in Multiple Sclerosis'

 

PhD research project 3-minute videos

SINAPSE PhD students rose to the challenge of explaining their imaging research using lay language in just 3 minutes:

Georgia Alexandrou (Stirling) - Using mobile EEG to investigate sports performance
Ellen Backhouse (Edinburgh) - Early life risk factors for stroke
Marta Guarisco (Glasgow) - Developing an automated method to assess collateral flow in patients with stroke
Simon Ladouce (Stirling) - Presentation of the mobile cognition project
Maria Clara Liuzzi (Glasgow) - Target approach of brain tumours
Ben Newman (St Andrews) - Investigating recollection in semantic memory
Tim Morgan (Glasgow) - A brief introduction to organic chemistry [Tim's entry for the IOP video competition, above, was about his PhD research project - so here he tackled another topic that is challenging to explain in 3 minutes!]

Brain Imaging and its Impact on Society

2010 series of three seminars held in partnership with the Scottish Universities Insight Institute

    Part 1: Advances in Neuroimaging and the implications for society

      Part 2: What is the legal view?

      Part 3: Influencing Policy

       

      Ethics in Research Imaging Management

      2010 meeting at the Wellcome Trust to discuss and highlight the magnitude and potential implications of incidental findings detected during research imaging (resultant report published by SINAPSE and the Royal College of Radiologists can be found here)
